God's in his heaven

...All is right with the world.

At 10:05pm Mountain Daylight Time, the Boston Red Sox swept the Colorado Rockies 4 games to nothing to win the 2007 world series.

This is the seventh world series win for the Sox, the second in three years after an 86 year drought (which included 5 unsuccessful appearances, and 24 seasons finishing in second place in the American League).

Earlier today, the New England Patriots DESTROYED the Washington Redskins 52-7. In fact, they put their second string in during the middle of the third quarter when they were up 45-0, just to give them some playing time, and they scored another touchdown (though they allowed one as well).

This brought New England to 8-0, and gave them the highest scoring disparity through 8 games ever recorded in the NFL, 331 points fielded, for 127 points allowed ; and the highest average score through 8 games of 41.4 points.

Oh and Tom Brady has the highest quarterback ranking through 8 games ever (141.7); on the strength of 30 touchdown passes for 2 interceptions, 198 completions for 267 attempts (74.2%) and 7 sacks.

To top it all off, FN has announced that they will resume production on the Winchester model 70, made in the USA; as well as continuing production on the Browning HI-Power (it had previously been announced that it would be discontinued) and announcing a new line of rifles from Browning, the X-Bolt.

Today is a good day.
